Kader Abdolah, Louis Couperus, Arnon Grunberg & Nelleke Noordervliet in a Matchbox – Illustrated by Elisa Pesapane

by Elisa
Kader Abdolah Elisa Pesapane

The ‘Elisa Pesapane Collection’ for MatchBoox is now available:

Elisa Pesapane illustrated stories by Kader Abdolah, Louis Couperus, Arnon Grunberg & Nelleke Noordervliet. Four handmade booklets -each in a matchbox-in a box.

Four stories that make the reader  travel all over the World: Together with Louis Couperus and a mysterious group of Japanese ladies we chase fireflies on the moonlit coastline of the famous Ama-no-Hashidate sandbar. Kader Abdolah shares an Iranian family history; on fleeing, starting over and the passing on of family talent. With Arnon Grunberg we follow Tara, a political activist; her travels, her lovelife, her family, her house in Gent and her longing for a child. Nelleke Noordervliet takes us to the romantic Limousin region of France, to the house of emancipated writer George Sand, where both past and present are tangible. The books also contain various portraits of the writers, taking on different ‘roles’ in their own stories; that of narrator, spectator and sometimes ‘supporting actor’.

Exhibition Archeological Museum Haarlem/Kunstlijn Haarlem 1-9 november

by Elisa

In November the works of Elisa Pesapane will populate the Archeological Museum Haarlem: various monumental drawings and paintings in oil on panel – a part of Elisa Pesapane’s ‘Kissed by Aeolus’ series and three 1,5 meter high triptychs.

Two ‘Dances of Death’, based on predecessors in the genre, play the main role in this exhibition. Drawings inspired by Hans Holbeins’ Dance of Death (1538) and a large triptych in oil on panel (150cmx220cm) that is based on the fresco from the façade of the “Oratorio dei Disciplini” in Clusone (IT) by Giacomo Borleone de Buschis (1485).

The Archeological Museum Haarlem is situated in the cellar of the Vleeshal (meat-hall) , a beautiful example of Northern Renaissance building. From 1604 to the 18th century it was the only place in Haarlem where fresh meat was allowed to be sold. The ox-heads on the front of the building indicate its old function. Since 1950 the building is in use as a gallery by the Frans Hals Museum, which holds art exhibitions there under the name Museum De Hallen. The small entrance on the left of the Vleeshal leads down to the cellar, home of the Archeological Museum Haarlem.

*The exhibition is part of the Kunstlijn Haarlem on November 1st and 2nd. During the Kunstllijn  weekend, Elisa Pesapane will be present at the exhibition. Visiting hours 10.00-17.00.
*From 5-9 november the ‘Dance of Death’ drawings and triptych and The ‘Kissed by Aeolus’ panels will remain in the museum, visiting hours 13.00-17.00.
